    Front End Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called in for an interview soon after. I met with the front end manager. I was a little overdressed and eager because it was my first job. I was in college and they didn't ask for much experience to be a cashier. I was mostly working with high school students. They loved my personality, I took the employment tests and training that same day and they put me on the schedule. They took an oral swab for a drug test and that was about it. I filled out the usual paperwork for taxes and my banking information.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions, I was just asked about my past jobs and what I was studying in school.   Answer Question

If you get an interview you will get your drug test and as long as that passes you have the job. The questions your asked are more for what position you will best be suited for.
